Best endgames to study

lgblue

I am a beginner/intermediate studying endgames.  I can learn quite a bit and want to but can't learn every scenario in a given book (now looking at Chess Endgames for Kids by Muller - not really just for kids and good explanations).  It is unrealistic that i can memorize each of the 50 scenarios in the book in the short term.  So lets say i can absorb 15 - 20, what would be the best ones?

Based on research I've done it appears that at least 57+% endgames are Rook endgames in some way shape or form so I'd say Rook endgames are a good place to begin. Bishops of opposite colors is interesting as well. I say study those two as well King and pawn(s) versus king and pawn(s).
